quick to make for a baby quilt or a lap quilt
Here are some simple ways to vary the layouts for this easy quick quilt.
I show the first 7 quilts (all using 24
blocks) all with the
same 3 fabrics
so you can clearly see the different layout
of the colors and arrangements. The last quilt, #8, shows a scrappy look.
uses the "useful units" in pairs
with plain 8" squares of background fabric.
|2. Below is
the same arrangement as #1,
but the plain squares are 4" in center and border.
puts the "useful units" into pinwheel
blocks with same 4" squares as #2.
uses pinwheels again, but this
time mixes 2 colors into the background.
|#5. Below uses 2 different colors in 4" squares.|
mixes all 3 colors into the 4"
uses a scrappy look. Several
different fabrics fill in the 3 color groups
instead of just 3. Fun with novelty prints!
